Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in his radio address on Sunday, assured Nepal full support in rescue, relief and rehabilitation of earthquake victims. “Nepal’s grief is our grief,” he said in the Mann Ki Baat. programme.

“I saw the Bhuj earthquake of January 26, 2001, very closely,” he said adding that the earthquake with its epicentre in Nepal had “shaken the entire world.” Mr. Modi opened his 15-minute address saying he was speaking with a heavy heart.

The address provided a wrap-up of events since his last address on March 22 and his foreign trips. “Indian evacuation efforts in Yemen were lauded by all because we rescued people from 48 countries,” he said.

“I am sure the efforts will leave an indelible mark in history.”
